This morning I brought the van to the dealership here. There is a TSB that exists for this problem. The TSB number is 16526 and below is the description:
16526 1995-2003 Windstar - low speed false ABS activation/ABS indicator or red brake lamp illuminated
Some 1995-2003 Windstar vehicles may exhibit low speed false abs activation, ABS indicator lamp and/or red brake lamp illumination, this may be due to a loose rear sensor hold down and/or bent rear sensor bracket flange. To service, first perform normal workshop manual diagnosis and any applicable pin point tests. Then perform a thorough inspection of all tone rings for cracks, run-out, or flawed teeth, if the tone rings are okay, check all sensors for looseness or incorrect rear sensor air-gap. Using a feeler gauge, adjust the rear sensor air gam to.020" -.030" by slightly adjusting the rear sensor bracket. After adjustment, make sure that the sensor face is parallel to the tone ring.
Effective date: 01/15/2003
If my problem gets solved by the above, I will post an update.
